Chapter 1: Reunited
"Ya think she's here yet?" Joey asked his friends, Yugi, Tristan, Bakura, and Mai.

The five of them were at the airport, waiting for Tea. "The flight is for four o'clock, Joey. It's only three fifty." Mai said, looking up from her fashion magazine. Tristan and Bakura were looking out at the window, seeing the airplanes take off.

Yugi glanced at his watch. "I can't wait to see Tea again. I wonder how much she changed." And his mind flashbacked to a little over a year ago.

"Well, the thing I have to tell you guys is." Tea nervously sipped her Coke.

"Get on with it!" Joey cried impatiently. Tea had called her friends, Yugi, Joey, Tristan, Bakura, and Mai over for an 'important news'. Everyone, obviously Joey included, was anticipating something big.

"My parents enrolled me into this student exchange program. And somebody's willing to take me for a year." Tea finally blurted out.

"Wow! Really?" Bakura looked interested. Tea nodded.

"Where?" Asked Yugi, expecting somewhere near. Sure it was an international program, but sometimes you ended up closer to your home than you would think.

"To America. To New York City." Tea replied. "NEW YORK CITY/???? That's, like a world away!" Mai exclaimed. Tea nodded.

"I don't know much about the people myself, except for their daughter is going to somewhere in Europe for a year so in exchange with the organization, they agreed to let another student stay with them." Tea said.
"Bye you guys. I'll miss you a lot." Tea's eyes watered. Sure, she was more than excited to go to a foreign country, but still, the parting with her closest friends was difficult in both ways.

Her friends stood around her, a week after she had dropped the news, in the airport.

"Bye Tea!" The friends hugged her separately than did a group hug.

"Flight 123 (I'm so uncreative ( ) to United States will be leaving in approximately fifteen minutes." The PA said.

"Tea, you better get ready to go to your gate." Her parents said gently. Tea nodded.

"You have to promise to write and call as often as you can, ok?" She reminded her friends for the thousandth time.

"All right, all right." Tristan replied seeming grouchy but smiling.
For the first couple months, the letters and phone calls were exchanged quite frequently. More letters than phone calls, due to the fact that phone calls cost more. But as Yugi and his friends started their sophomore year in the high school and Tea her new high school, their connections naturally became less intense and more relaxed.
A week ago, Yugi was trying to figure out a difficult chemistry homework. "Aha! I got it!" He exclaimed. At the exact same time, the phone rang. "I'll get it!" He grabbed the phone, wondering who it could be.

"Hello? Motou residence." Yugi said into the receiver.

"Hi Yugi!" A familiar voice greeted him cheerfully on the other end. Yugi furrowed his brow slightly. He had heard that voice somewhere, but where? (it's been a while since they phoned each other) He drew a quick breath.could it be.Tea?!

"Tea?" He whispered, bearing managing to say it.

"It's been along time!" She cried joyously on the other end. "Anyway, I have news to tell." Yugi cringed at the last time she said those words - to say that she'd be going away from them. "Yeah?"

"Yup. I'm coming back!" A golden smile lit across Yugi's face. "Wow! Really?" He exclaimed. "Yes! I'm arriving at the airport at four o'clock in the after noon next Friday." Tea announced.

"We'll be waiting there!" Yugi replied, excited. His gaze fell on the calendar. School ended on Wednesday. Tea would be coming just in time for the beginning of summer vacation!

***End Flashback***
"Flight 305 (my homeroom number ^^) has just arrived."

"Isn't that Tea's flight?" Bakura inquired. Yugi glanced at the sheet of paper that he'd scribbled down some notes Tea had told him about. He nodded excitedly.

"Yeah, it is!" He eagerly searched in the crowd of people, mostly foreigners walking out of the gate.
A blue eyed brunette walked out of the gate. She had shoulder length brown hair and had on jeans and a blouse. She slung her knapsack on her shoulder.

"TEA!" Yugi, Joey, Tristan, and Bakura cried. Tea turned around. A big smile appeared on her face.

"Hi guys!" They hugged each other. "Welcome back!" Joey welcomed her. "I'm glad to be back! Hello Mai!" She hugged Mai, who had been staying out of the group.

Mai and Tea weren't really close friends, but right at the present moment, Tea was glad to see anyone, even Mai.

"Hey Tea. Welcome back to Japan. I hope you had fun in America." Mai hugged Tea back.

"You can come over my house to talk." Yugi offered. He knew that Tea's parents were on a business trip that they couldn't get out of, no matter how hard they tried.

"Yea Tea, do that!" Joey urged her as he helped her carry her luggage.

"Alright." The friends headed out of the airport, mouths never stopping.
A/N: All right! One Chapter down, another bunch to go! How was it? I thought of the airport idea when I was at the airport in December. Yeah, that's how long I had this idea, but I kept writing and ripping my rough chapter 1 drafts. I think this is the best one. But I won't know how you think unless you r + r, right? So do it !!!
